Your consciousness of your world is all there is to your world.
Consciousness isn’t a word. It is literally the very “Substance” wherein all existing goes on. Consciousness is actively aware and alive as all Presence, the only real “Place” there is. It is the one, essential “Stuff” without which your everyday affairs and entire universe wouldn’t even appear to exist.
Consciousness has to be Reality, for nothing else is really being to be Reality. Reality isn’t a far-off state one ultimately becomes conscious of. Reality simply is what really is—which is Consciousness effortlessly being, right here, now.
